Visa Letter Request
Everyone who is not a New Zealand or Norfolk Island resident will need a visa to enter Australia. ’To avoid delays as processing times vary by country, ISCT recommends applying for your visa as soon as possible
The appropriate visa option will depend mainly on your reason for visiting Australia. If you are travelling for only the conference, the majority of people (depending on your passport Country) should apply for either the Electronic Travel Authority (subclass 601) or the eVisitor (subclass 651).
New Zealand passport holders will be granted a Special Category Visas (SCV) (subclass 444)upon arrival in Australia which allows them to visit freely.
